Curriculum Statement of Intent
As part of our PSHE and Aspire education, our intent is for the curriculum to promote an awareness and develop the understanding of the knowledge, skills, and attributes students need to keep themselves healthy and safe and to prepare them for life and work in modern Britain. PSHE education helps pupils to develop these knowledge, skills and attributes they need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society. From making responsible decisions about alcohol to succeeding in their first job, PSHE education helps pupils to manage many of the most critical opportunities, challenges and responsibilities they will face growing up. PSHE education helps children and young people to achieve their potential by supporting their wellbeing and tackling issues that can affect their ability to learn, such as anxiety and unhealthy relationships. PSHE education also helps pupils to develop skills and aptitudes – like teamwork, communication, and resilience – that are crucial to navigating the challenges and opportunities of the modern world and are increasingly valued by employers.
Implementation of Curriculum
PSHE will be a journey which builds upon the foundations laid at primary school directed through the topic-based approach. There are three strands of the PSHE programme that we deliver from year 7 through to year 11 and these are ‘Living in the wider world’, ‘Relationships’ and ‘Health and wellbeing’. These strands are delivered through our Aspire lessons and Tutor time activities and also incorporate a deeper understanding of our fundamental British Values and SMSC (Spiritual, moral, social and cultural education). We implement this through the aspiration to deliver high quality education which promotes a love of learning about the world they live in, society and themselves in such a way that prepares them for life when they leave school.
Impact of Curriculum
As part of their PSHE education, we aim to make a positive impact regarding the mental wellbeing of our pupils in the ever increasing and demanding world we live in, to give them the knowledge, skills and strategies to cope with the demands of everyday life in modern Britain. We also teach students to make the right choices which will impact them in a positive way as they approach adulthood but also to have a positive ‘can do’ attitude whilst they are at school. We will know that this is true as we are delivering a high standard of education, quality assured through measures such as:
